Pain relief is just a call away… 507-469-1344

Trigger Point Therapy or Deep Tissue massage (also known as Myotherapy) is a bodywork technique that involves applying pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and discomfort. The goal is to eliminate pain, increase range of motion and flexibility, re-educating the muscles into pain free habits by applying optimal pressure to the trigger point, after warming up the muscles and tissue.

Trigger Points appear in muscles that can be overworked muscles, or direct trauma to a muscle due to an injury or accident. When pressed, a trigger point may radiate , or refer, pain to other areas of the body. They can also cause muscle weakness and restrict range of motion. As a result, some therapists address the area that is the site of pain without really getting to the cause of the problem, the actual site of the trigger point.

Trigger points can present themselves as referred patterns of sensation such as sharp pain, dull ache, tingling, pins and needles, hot or cold, as well as can create symptoms such as migraines, nausea, ear ache, equilibrium disturbance, or blurred vision.
